Another Mother Goose Book

I have written in earlier "Favorite Books" posts about some of my Mother Goose books - but I somehow missed this one! I found it in a shop, and even though it is really messed up - stained, pages are colored on with crayon, etc. the adorable images by Margaret Evans Price were just too sweet to pass up. Mother Goose on the cover:
Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary ( she's my favorite):
Little Bo Peep:
Rock-a-Bye Baby (whoops! um - that baby's going to get hurt!):
And Simple Simon:
I don't suppose I would mind one bit if I met a pieman while going to the fair (especially if he was selling pies for a penny!). Would you?
